Scholarship Policy
PDF Version

The AFP North Central Ohio Chapter fosters the professional development of fundraising professionals and promotes high ethical standards in the fundraising profession. It is the Chapterís policy to use a portion of our net assets to offer scholarships for fundraising professionals in the ten counties we serve to increase their professionalism, knowledge, and skills by attending professional development meetings and conferences.

 Scholarship Procedures

1. To be considered for an award, each applicant must submit a completed application prior to the deadline.

2. The Scholarship Fund Committee will review all applications and make award decisions. Both winners and alternates may be selected.

3. Awards may be for the full amount requested or a portion thereof.

4. The Scholarship Committee Chair is responsible for:

  • Notification of all awards and scholarship amounts
  • Communicating to the recipient(s) when and how the funds will be distributed
  • Contacting all applicants who were not selected for an award in a timely manner

5. Payment of an award is conditional on the recipient fulfilling the obligation for which the award is made. If a recipient cannot use the scholarship, it may be awarded to an alternate.

For more information, please contact Danielle Hupp, Scholarships Chair, at drhupp@kent.edu.
